1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Michelle L. Daniel  of Tea Time Creations, LLC.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I have always been interested in aromatherapy.  My nightly ritual involved relaxing in a hot bath with my own special blend of essential oils.  Since I have always been drawn to scented bath products, I wondered if I could make a soap with my special recipe of essential oils that I loved so much.  I began researching soapmaking and decided to give it a try.  I was addicted.

After experimenting with several different recipes, I wondered if I could incorporate my cake decorating skills into soapmaking.  A friend who had seen my work suggested I take my soaps to a holiday craft event.  One thing lead to another, and Tea Time Creations, LLC was formed the beginning of 2012.  I haven’t given up my career as a court reporter, but I hope to someday make Tea Time Creations, LLC a successful business.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make custom designed soap into cakes and cupcakes.  I also make three-tier cake stands to display my soap out of vintage china.

4.  What are your business goals?  I truly hope to someday make Tea Time Creations, LLC a successful business.  Ultimately, I hope to do custom designs for weddings, showers, parties, etc.  I really enjoy coming up with new designs and challenging myself to create unique pieces.  I have always been drawn to the unique, and want to create a product which will memorialize a life event — that bride on her special day, a mother to be, or a child’s first birthday.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden?  Being a new, start-up business, I have had the need and opportunity to order several products from several different companies.  I find Natures Gardens fragrance oils to be the best.  When a company is formed with the purpose of satisfying the sense of smell, the scents chosen are the most important ingredient, and Natures Garden wins hands down.
